This is a new combo deck, partially inspired by the Chaos Theory + Bagbiter + Faust decks of old like Faust Theory ( https://netrunnerdb.com/en/decklist/23912/faust-theory-10th-verona-regional ). The idea here is a little different, though. You'd like to draw your whole deck so that you can use Severnius Stim Implant, alongside "Freedom Through Equality", to deep dig HQ and RnD, then Levy and do it all again. Once you're set up your odds of winning in one turn aren't terrible, and in 2-3 turns are pretty good.

The econ is Kati Jones and Peace in Our Time. Faust Theory used Magnum Opus, but I find that clicking for 8 repeatedly after installing Bagbiter is too slow. Kati lets you get a bank of credits so that after you install Bagbiter you can get credits to keep up your hand size. Peace in Our Time also really speeds up how quickly you can build back p after the Bagbiter install.

I've only played a few games with it so far, but it's doing well and it's fun. Probably could use a 3rd Levy AR Lab Access, since you'll absolutely use 1 and probably 2.

MCA Informant now is a card...

@1337J4NK5P4MM3RI don't think MCA is the end of the world, but I also wouldn't recommend this deck if you're trying to win a Store Champs. Depending on when they hit you with MCA, if you're reasonably well set up then you can use Severnius to make a run to discard all those extra cards and multi access before trashing Theophilius, and then Levy to do it over again.
